New Brand - Barford
To meet the diversified needs of the growing market for motor powered construction equipment, Aveling-Barford introduced in the UK its first site dumper in 1936. As a part of the family owned Wordsworth Holdings Group, Barford prides itself on a long tradition of designing and manufacturing robustly engineered reliable dumpers. Foreseeing the customer requirements and developing break-through quality products has kept Barford ahead of the competition in the site dumper market. The company is known worldwide for its wide product range and inherent product quality and is still recognised by its signature Work Horse logo. Many people underestimate the usefulness and the applications of a site dumper. These machines are easy to drive and operate, which means relatively untrained drivers can quickly pick-up the skills to operate safely. This machine is highly manoeuvrable irrespective of its tonnage or capacity. The high volume skips can be used for transporting a wide range of materials including sand, soil, wet concrete, general waste, bagged materials, rock and landscaping materials virtually on any ground conditions owing to its high performance 4x4 Drive, powerful output performance and durable tyres. Advantages Include:

Large payload 2 to 10tons (up to 5m3) Very low maintenance cost All Terrain 4x4 Drive

New Innovative Technology - Acra Screed System Acra Screed is a screed rail system designed and developed by a highly experienced builder and civil engineer. The concept allows contractors to lay countless cubic meters of concrete easily, accurately and with minimum fuss. Screed rails are designed to support screeding machines at a pre-set height in order for them to produce large flat floor quickly. There are different basic set-ups of the Acra Screed system that allow it to be used on floor slabs, bridge decks, rebar setups and existing concrete floors. The following step-by-step process covers the basic process of how to Step 1... Step 2... Step 3...

Position concrete base block at approx 1 metre intervals. The blocks are designed to support the lower reinforcement mesh / bar as well as the screed rail system. Step 4...

Fit the rail supports. These will eventually hold the rail at the desired height. Different length rail supports are available to suite your requirements. Step 5...

Adjust the rail supports to the desired height. They can be set to +/- 0.5mm. A speed adjuster is supplied with the system to aid rapid setup. Step 6...

Slot the 6m long Screed rails into the supports. This part of the system is reusable. Ensure that the screed rails are still level from step 3. Step 7...

Pour the concrete around the screed rails, this should be placed to the height of the top of the rails.

Use a power screed such as vibrating beams, roller striker or trussed screed. These powered screed machines will strike off and quickly level between the rails. Step 9...

Step 8...

Remove the screed rail and either put to one side or re-use as rail supports further into the job or for future use.

Use a concrete float such as a Big Blue or Bull Float to remove the marks the rail leaves behind, this will make finishing the floor easier. Finish the floor to the desired finish using tools such as a power float.

Continue to work across the concrete bay strip by strip until the whole floor has been successfully screeded.

Key Benefits.

Accurate floors to within +/- 0.5mm Rapid floor laying (achieve 2500m2+ easily) Easy and quick to set up Supports all type of power screed machines including: Reduces labour on concrete pours Potential material savings Gives more time to finish floors & Accurate floors first
time. vibrating beams, roller screeds and truss screeds.
